This study compares using off the shelf stock lengths (standards) with purpose-made specials reinforcement continuity strip. Based on the concrete cores of a residential construction project where FERBOX was used, analysis found 20% wastage of materials plus consequent wasted labour and other indirect costs if stock lengths had been used. Made-to-measure specials also results in increased construction efficiencies and improved health and safety on-site, by reducing exposure to power tools and other risks. Reinforcement continuity strip is structural component and requires performance validation: a CARES approved system such as FERBOX meets the QA needs of stakeholders and enables compliance with the National Structural Concrete Specification (NSCS).
